It's 12:00pm EST September 22nd, 2020. The contest is closed to further entries. Voting has been enabled and entries can now be voted on. See below for instructions on how to vote.

Unfortunately, we only received 8 entries this month so the $25.00 prize will not be awarded. :(

We do hope you will still take some time and vote for your favorite entry. Voting is open until 11:59 pm EST September 30th, 2020. The winner will be announced on October 1st, 2020.

Good luck to all who entered. :D

Please come back on October 1st, 2020 when we will start the October Photo contest. There will again be the potential for a "cash" prize. We look forward to seeing your entries and hope we'll be able to award a prize next month.
